Great salad Victoria. I used leftover taco meat and french dressing instead of the taco sauce. I am not a big fan of Catalina by any means, but for some reason it pairs beautifully with taco meat. I used Frito's instead of tortilla chips. Will definitely make again!!!
I cooked the beef in taco seasoning, then made a layered taco salad. It was good, but not great. I don't think I'd serve it to guests, but for a tortilla chip lover such as myself, it was good for a quick afternoon snack.
This is one of my favorite meals because it's so quick for me on a busy day and my boys love it because....we'll, they're getting chips for dinner! I health it up a bit and use ground turkey, my own homemade taco seasoning and I add chopped organic peppers and sometimes shredded carrot or zucchini to the taco meat. You can even sub half organic black beans for half the meat or double it to include the black beans in the taco meat to really make it stretch for a big family (or big eaters, like mine!). I also make my own salsa to go over the top. This can be made "lighter" with lowfat cheese and fat free sour cream without much difference in flavor. Try this with organic flavored taco chips, too! Even better!
really good basic recipe, I added a can of refried beans to the hamburger and a little of the taco sauce. Then layer the rest as suggested.
Really good. I added a package of taco seasoning. Also added olives and onions. Makes great super quick dinner. Still makes a mess though.
I used iceburg lettuce in place of romaine, instead of taco sauce I used 2 TBLS of the taco seasoning mix I recipe, 1/4 cup of water and a couple tablespoon of Secret Burger Sauce recipe. Added cucumbers, shredded carrots and sliced green peppers. Served with homemade ranch dressing. YUM!!!
Great! I used a powdered taco sauce mix with the ground beef, substituted regular head lettuce instead of romaine and layered it differently with the lettuce on the bottom. I will definitely do this one over and over!
Yummy and easy too! I make my own taco seasoning mix to add to the beef (4 teaspoons chili powder, 1 teaspoon cornstarch, 1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper and 1/2 cup water).
